EXCLUSIVE: Sofia Bryant (I don’t agree with that) is expected to direct the cast of a dramatic feature film Never better from five Feet apart producers Wayfarer Studios.
The dramatic comedy follows Terese (Bryant), a young woman with cystic fibrosis who is stuck in the time loop of her forties. When her interested roommate Amanda (Sarah Kane) returns and fails to practice safe social distancing, our immuno-compromised heroine finds boredom perhaps the least of her worries. As she battles her boredom with substances and unstoppable internal dialogue, Terese eventually learns to open up and let others in.
The film, currently in post-production, is part of a list of films by producer Wayfarer Six Feet Apart Experiment, which challenged storytellers to make confined films during the pandemic. Five selected filmmakers were paired with a seasoned storyteller as a mentor and Traveler Studios finances and oversees the production process. Most of the projects are now in post-production.
The writer-director is Julianne Fox, the producer is Porschia Adler. Fox was mentored on the program by Nzingha Stewart (Tall girl). Also among the actors are Sarah Kane, Piper Curda, Iris Liu and Tre’len Johnston.
Bryant is best known for playing with Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff in the Netflix sci-fi comedy series I don’t agree with that. She is also in post-production on a comedy feature film Mark, Mary and a few other people.
Bryant is represented by Innovative Artists and imprint PR.
